Food was warm not hot, had to ask for vegetables as didn’t come out with roast as advertised. Inside Chicken thigh was pink- coffee was luke warm. Did have a reduction on bill after highlighting the above.

We were staying up the road for a week and decided to come here early on a Sunday night. We booked for a party of 6 no problem on OpenTable but for whatever reason the restaurant didn’t show our reservation when we got there. Nevertheless they seated us fairly quickly, but unfortunately next to a birthday party of people who had a few too many and were very loud, and constantly leaving the back door open (and the smoke in). The vibe in the place is cool, big round bar in the middle and lots of nooks with tables and a big outdoors. The service took a bit to get to us and appeared to be a bit overwhelmed trying to manage a full house and patio. They were very polite and able to answer any questions we had though. Seems like they have daily/nightly specials, and our group all enjoyed the food and drink. Had we not had the experience with the party next to us I’d likely rate them a tick or two higher as a very good local pub.

Waiters were not very responsive / attentive to us. Had to wait for 10 mins to eventually get the menu, took another 5 minutes to be served. It wasn’t particularly busy either. Food was good and worth the price though. Would recommend for the food

A great find. One of the best Sunday roast's I've had in a long while, absolutely bursting with taste, including perfectly cooked veg. A good selection of wine, a balmy (if occasionally noisy, dependent on the crowd) garden, and a friendly and helpful team. Definitely a returner!

I took my parents there for dinner and it was too loud and full of people boozing. No atmosphere for dinner.. the dining and bar area needs to be separated for a Saturday night.

Sunday roast was good as normal. Yorkshire puds weren't great though which was a shame and parsnips really undercooked.

Hi.

The restaurant did not have my reservation even though I had a confirmation from Open Table. Even though they said they could accommodate us the vibe was very different to what was depicted on the website. It was a very noisy environment that would have been very difficult to have a conversation over dinner. We decided to go elsewhere.

This was my second time at the rose
The waitress brought the wrong wine to start with - easy mistake
She also cleared my plate while my friend was still eating ! Never acceptable.
My burger and my friends were both burnt.
I had to go to the bar to ask for more drinks etc
I will not be back .
Only plus was really nice cocktails and lovely wine

The garden is gorgeous, but that's pretty much it.
The food is average and over-priced, especially the fish and chips: a lot of chips, a lot of batter, not enough fish.

On arrival the restaurant advised us that we did not have a booking as they no longer accept bookings from Open Table. You appear not to be aware of this fact! They did however find us a table and we had a pleasant evening.

Great location for Chelsea FC, good beer selection but restaurant / food can not cope on match days. Meal for 6 people 3.5 hours before kickoff was a poor experience with food arriving at different times, some of it was cold and had to be returned.

The food was quite mediocre - we had the Roast and it looked good but came out a bit burnt and was quite bland. Also they had a pub quiz on that same night and are not really technologically advanced so the quiz master kept running around and shouting the questions several times around the pub. So probably best not coming here on Sunday afternoons if you're looking for a quiet one. Good wine selection though...

Good to find the Fulham Rose. Went there for a Sunday Roast which was excellent and very generous when it came to portions. Lovely place to spend a Sunday lunchtime. Nice and bright and with its own outdoor seating area. Will definitely go again and try their weekday menu and 2 for 1 cocktail hour!

I've been eating at the Rose for just over four years, every Chelsea home match in fact so 20 to 22 times a year. Recently under new management the last two visits have been very poor for myself and guests, in fact so much so that we will now seek another venue. Really poor food and very poor service, they were also not keen to get poor feedback which is not a good sign for a regular Customer

Booked a table to have supper before an event locally. Fair prices, great food and good service. We both had the veggie burger and fries, delicious and fresh. Bit noisy as there was an event on but staff were attentive and helpful

Arrived at the allotted time and was taken straight to our table. A drinks order was taken while we waited for our friends to join us. The service was attentive to the point I felt a little rushed in making a dinner choice, better that than waiting for service I suppose . Once we had all arrived our order was taken and it was a short wait for our meals to be brought to the table.
Quality was excellent as always and the price was as you'd expect for good quality food in a vibrant Chelsea pub.
Will be coming back again.

The outside garden has a lovely relaxed feel but the quality of the food was not good. Also there was not a good wine selection....we asked for Chardonnay which was unavailable and also port with was not available. My guest then ordered a sherry which was undrinkable and had to settle for another glass of wine .

Its a proper Pub with food, its not Made In Chelsea (although I think some do sneak in), but that is a good thing.

Large group of City/Professional old friends & colleagues now scattered and moved on with lives/familys always meet for a beer or two in the Rose pre-match and particularly in the summer will have decent lunch or b-b-q outside on large part covered terrace.
Great to have a consistent base to meet for our ever changing group and know it has decent food and drink, good setting and accomodating staff.

Food ranges from well done pub classics to more gastro pub with the chefs occasionally being more adventurous and is delivered well & promptly from a busy kitchen.

End of season and special occasions we have a large group lunch in the upstairs dinning room and the manager and staff are always very accommodating and is a very relaxed way to meet up with good friends and eat a good lunch at reasonable, for Fulham, prices whilst enjoying the atmosphere but not being dominated by the boisterous bar downstairs, avoid the jostle of queuing and a little less waiting for drinks. And then a few beers in the garden after the game.

Staff are busy but helpful & welcoming and manager looks after loyal customers like old friends.

So I recommend the Rose for a decent casual lunch or dinner anytime with a few drinks/mates but particularly on a sunny day - avoiding the football crowds if you want (if you don't like football crowds then check interweb beforehand, they are the regulars so you are joining them not v.v.! - its only part of 1 out of every 14 days and now high summer is footie free) - but also for those who enjoy a few beers, possibly a bite to eat, and a chat with their mates (just like a pub used to be) before a match in a moderately grown-up atmosphere.
For special occasions/big groups book the upstairs dinning room for a degree of calmness in the chaos on match day but a more sophisticated experience for a large group non-match day.

Took friends visiting from America and we all loved the Rose. My wife and I have been multiple times and the Sunday roast is just fabulous. More food than you could possible eat and just delicious.
